Progressive Metal artists Fates Warning have released an album teaser for their upcoming release, Theories of Flight. Theories of Flight will be released through Inside Out Music on July 1st, 2016.
Fates Warning vocalist Ray Alder checked in to comment about Theories Of Flight as follows:
"We began writing the music for "Theories" while we were still touring for "Darkness"... I believe that the anticipation to write another record was due to the fact that we were once again touring and playing new material after nine years of playing the same songs. It was exciting to be on stage again and we looked forward to getting back in the studio. I also believe that our fans were happy to finally having something new to listen to..
I/we are very happy with the way that "Theories" turned out. Jim and I collaborated practically every day on the new album for over a year until we actually went into the studio.. ...more

The Fall of Troy, having recently released 'OK' last month after a six year hiatus, has suddenly released a second LP, entitled 'OK#2'. The band stated on their website, thefalloftroy.com:
A note about OK#2:
More art is always better, we think.
When we were making this album, we wanted to do a few things we haven’t had the chance to do previously in our career; work with multiple artists, work with multiple producers, and work only for our fans.
We understood when working on this album that everyone hears The Fall of Troy differently. We would like to respect that, and you, as much as possible.
So, here is a different take of the album, with a different take on the artwork. OK#2 represents a different version of us; the raw fury you hear at our shows and our earlier albums.
If you would like to continue to support, pay us what you want, or don't. This is for you.
